Devoted to all types of music, especially sounds of the previous generation, singer/songwriter Justin Marra continues to transform and evolve. Globally aware, and painfully honest Justin continues to offer social commentary, while also continuing to look in. Returning to his rock n’ roll roots his new album Lost In Petrichor alternates styles, genres, and sounds. Taking influences from classic singer songwriters, blues breakers, and pop makers alike his Americana Sound cuts through true. Alternating between electric and acoustic performances Justin has reunited with bandmates Decoteaux and Furtado and is 1/3 of Suvivors of The Kraken.

Spending the better part of the last decade in Worcester, MA Justin has returned to the town of West Warwick where he was born and raised, and now teaches at Trinity Academy for the Performing Arts in Providence. He has come to terms with being a Rhode Islander. Able to finally devote more time to spreading his music beyond the coffee houses of Providence and Worcester he continues to write, record, and perform wherever, and whenever possible. Justin (guitars/vocals) is one third of Survivors Of The Kraken formed with Brian Decoteaux (drums) and Allan Furtado (bass).


Hollow Turtle has been playing together since its members were in high school. Alfie Purcell, with his roots in traditional Irish folk, Joe and James Cappelletti, with their thrumming standing bass and natural finesse with a banjo, and Nick Preite, their ever-skillful mandolin player, create powerful bluegrass music that can only come from the heart of the Ocean State.


The CarLeans are a musical collaboration between RI/CT based musicians Jim Carpenter (guitar, vocals), Sarah MacLean (guitar, vocals) and Corina Malbaurn (bass, vocals). Theblending of their diverse musical backgrounds creates a captivating musical experience. Steeped in passion for story telling and navigatingthe human experience, their original songs are raw and powerful – paired with a delivery and live performance that’s honest and marked by well-placed musicianship and vocal presence. There’s a versatile sound that comes from the three piece rooted in Americana/folk music, that extends through Country/Pop/Blues/Cajun when the song calls for it.


The daybreakers is band of four individuals who are fronted by a seasoned veteran musician Kyle Murphy. Holding down the rhythm and high harmonies is John Hanson. The nuts and berries of their sound come from the thundering percussion of Mark Torch and the smooth creamy tone of Matt Schairer’s bass. Their influences range from Eric Clapton, to The Band. With the recent release of their debut album, and a promotions deal with Powderfinger Promotions, these cats have a bright future!
